Only You Can Prevent Painful Fires

posted by Guy Finley
A spark can cause a fire to appear but, without something to ignite and burn, a spark is just a flash of heat destined to disappear. We can either fight with “sparks” — someone’s cruel remark, a moment feared, whatever — carrying with us, in vain, a bucket of hopes and retorts to throw upon them as they appear…Or we can begin the difficult task of “clearing” out all of the “tinder” that comprises our false beliefs about this life, those parts of us that erupt in flames when life “heats” up.
Is this an easy task? Not by any means!
Can it be done? Yes, by all means. Otherwise the smoke we smell is that of our higher possibilities being slowly consumed.
What to do?
Let reality reveal what are sticks and what is stone. In the clarity of this discovery is freedom.


  • Journ E

    I had an emotionally violent and terribly upsetting 2010. For the past several months I’ve been replaying in my mind, many events that transpired.I’ve only become more and more wounded everytime I nurse the memory of the experiences that contributed to my painful year. I never knew how to stop it until now. I just had to stop. I began to inhale a positive emotion or ideal through my nose and exhale the negative emotion/feeling that was hindering me from gladly taking the next step in my day. It’s a conscious, sometimes uncomfortable thing to do especially in public ,but it’s necessary for my own peaceful survival. To take a moment even in times of adversity and chaos. To center myself in the moment and focus on my breath. Thus leading to more sound decisions and better judgement. For the first time in years I will begin to release my sense of worry. I will embrace each moment as I strive to see emotional progress.

  • Won’t Stop Believin’

    How can I “clear out the tinder” when all that I do feel is the intense heat? Is the heat real? Seems to be… I want to believe that it is. I no longer live in fear of being burned by the flame, though I admit I do worry about the smoke somedays. I am still waiting for the smoke to clear. Will it ever?

Find New Happiness in Self-Wholeness
Before we can know a happiness beyond the reach of conflict or sorrow, we must ourselves be whole; for any happiness apart from self-wholeness is only half a happiness and must, in time, prove itself so.

Take the First Step to Wholeness
We go through our lives in a continual dance of being filled with something that needs an answer, and then going out and finding that answer… only to find out that our answer wasn’t quite the answer. Then, as we bring to ourselves whatever we thought we needed, it changes. Or, as we actually see

The Clarity of Wholeness
Question: I know I have a confused and divided mind, so how can I get it into self-wholeness? Answer: Just as an electric fan cannot sort papers on a desk, giving them order, neither can the whirling mind produce Peace. To see the truth of this causes a kind of “self-disconnect,” and at once

The Secret of Wholeness
It is in the acceptance of life as it is -- as it is given to us in each moment -- that we find the wholeness, the holiness that is the one true center of this storm called "life."
